  • Hello Ajay,

    Welcome to MSDN Forum and thank you for posting here. I am Jackie.

    Though I don’t have the environment to reappear your problem and test it work or not, I still can give you an advice about the provider. I think you can use the ODBC Provider because I find this document:

    http://www.connectionstrings.com/cache

    Hope it can help, and if anything is unclear, please free feel to let us know.

     

    Thank you for your understanding and support.

    Merry Christmas,

  • Ajay and Jackie,

    Have you found an answer to your question yet? I have exactly the same question. What Jackie has suggested does work if you just want to connect to Cache using ADO.Net connection ODBC features. However to generate a ADO.Net Entity Data Model the IDE wizard does not even show support to ODBC drivers.

    I found this,

    Questions

    1. Same as Ajay, ADO.NET Entity Framework 4.0 has a provider for Intersystems Caché database?

    2. Once we find a provider, how do I make the ODBC appear in the wizard when choosing a connection in the ADO.Net Entity Data Model wizard?
